Video: Girl pulled from flood in dramatic scenes

Dramatic footage has emerged of the moment when a girl was pulled from a car in a flooded Iowa ditch.

Emergency crews were praised for the rescue of the girl and two women from an SUV stuck in rising floodwater.

The trio had been driving just south of the border with Minnesota when their car skidded off the road in torrential rain.

One rescuer had no choice to pull the girl out of the car through the front passenger window as the water levels rose.

He then carried her through water before placing her on higher ground.

While the women and gird were shaken they were not hurt and were treated by paramedics.
